Hi peole , we have a Astra TDI 1.7 8v mk4 , about to do a cam belt change , done lots before BUT on this one i need a bit of info, when i go to put new belt on after putting new head on ( smashed rocker arms ) i can lock the bottom of the engine ( crank ) witch is fine , BUT it is saying that i need a DTI support tool , do i need this as its about £100+ , if the bottom of the engine is locked off at TDC , all i need to do is set the top half of the engine , whats the best way going about that , thanks .

Ryan.

o ya just to add to that as well , i cant really mark the top and bottom cogs with each other as it has knocked out all the timing due to smashed rocker arms , the rest of engine is spot on just need to whack new head on and get the bottom to TDC and set the top half of engine and i belive with the diesel pump as well?? , best way?

Thanks.
